You can’t really go wrong with this chain. The Holliday Inn in Steamboat was not an exception. There were little bells and whistles but we didn’t go for Ritz either when we booked it.
Location: Very convenient right on Lincoln pretty much as soon as you get into town from US40. They have huge sign which you can’t really miss day or night. They are about 3-4 min by car to downtown and have a free city shuttle stop right next to them. They got their own shuttle too, but I think it only runs in winter.
Check in/out/staff: Very efficient and professional check in process – we were prepaid thought the travel site we booked them on so most of the time it took us to check in was asking the staff about events in town on that day and dinner recommendations. Staff was very professional and when our key didn’t work the front desk attendant personally went to the room to make sure the replacement keys worked fine. Check out was even quicker and we also gotten good recommendation for breakfast.
Amenities/rooms: Even though we didn’t use any, the hotel got a fitness center, pool, hot tub and a restaurant on site. The room was relatively spacious and had all you’d need and a bit more – a fridge was a nice extra. I don’t remember seeing a safe there, as most hotels do these days, but I didn’t look for one either. The TV selection was relatively basic – something to keep in mind if that’s important (we didn’t care). We also didn’t see any robes, but I wonder if we may have gotten them if we asked. The whole hotel was nicely updated and very clean – that included rooms, lobby and hallways. Free WiFi was also included in price. Bed was very comfortable too and lines were of very good quality. Parking was plentiful.
Price: It’s a bit on the high side for a budget motel – we paid just under $100 with all the taxes/fees/etc included - even though it was kept up very nicely and somewhat updated. But, then again, Steamboat, even in between seasons, is not a very cheap place to stay. There were cheaper motels around but we didn’t feel that saving $20-$25/night (and we wouldn’t have saved much more) would compensate for something run down and uncomfortable.
